News broke Tuesday afternoon that former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman had been forced out of his scheduled UFC 199 bout due to an undisclosed injury.

After the news broke on Twitter, Jeremy Botter of FloCombat confirmed the story, which also revealed that there has been no official word yet on who would step in on short notice to fight Luke Rockhold for the middleweight championship on June 4th.

Two potential options are Jacare Souza, who defeated Vitor Belfort this past Saturday at UFC 198, and Michael Bisping, who recently defeated Anderson Silva via unanimous decision earlier this year.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
